Although I don't remember dreaming of great adventures, when I married Dick Cadd, I married an adventure. Because my husband wanted us to be a team, he included me (and our children) in his life of adventures. We did become a team. However, my attitude needed to change, and it wasn't easy The right attitude can turn a disaster into an adventure and great memory. It can turn tragedy into triumph, and even change disappointments into fun and real joy. There are many things in life we can not change, but our attitude is a choice. This is not a book of "Do, Don't and How To." It is stories in my life of adventures, and the remarkable results when, with God's help, I chose the right attitude. My early life would be considered magical. It was filled with family, friends, fun, love--and ice cream. (My dad owned a creamery, with emphasis on ice cream.) I spent the first 17 years of my life in Idaho with my parents, two brothers, and one sister. I attended Pacific College (now George Fox University) in Oregon. After marriage to Dick Cadd, we lived and worked in Idaho, Oregon, California, and spent 33 years in the Philippines. My most important job was wife to Dick and mother to our five children: Carolyn, Jon, Steve, Yvonne, and LuAnne. I have 13 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Other jobs have included teaching school, accompanying Dick's choirs, producing a weekly television show, mission work, talent coordinator for a movie, and assistant in filming documentaries in many countries. At the present time, I am U.S. Vice President of Sword Productions. I have written two books with my husband, two books on my own, and numerous articles, scripts, devotionals, and newsletters.
